About the Gallery

The Joel Soroka Gallery was established in Aspen, Colorado in 1993, the culmination of Mr Soroka's career as a private dealer and avid collector of fine art photographs. Located in Aspen for 20 years, now Joel Soroka has become a private dealer with offices in nearby Basalt, Colorado and is available by appointment only.

In inventory are rare and important vintage photographs by historic masters whose work is sought by museums, corporate and individual collectors such as Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Brassai, Lewis Hine, Man Ray, Berenice Abbott, Josef Sudek, Brett Weston, Frantisek Drtikol and Ilse Bing, among many others. Also represented are works by renowned contemporary American and International photographers and up-and-coming younger artists personally selected by Joel Soroka for their extraordinary quality and potential value as fine art objects. Artist's include Beatrice Helg, Luis Gonzalez-Palma, Lalla Essaydi, Lynn Bianchi, Frederic Ohringer, Cig Harvey and Franco Donaggio.

The Joel Soroka Gallery is a long time member of AIPAD, the Association of International Photographic Art Dealers and exhibits regularly at the annual Photography Show at the Park Ave Armory and other important fine art venues in Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Joel Soroka has a reputation for a keen eye and the willingness to take the time to educate beginners in collecting fine art photography. As a longtime dealer with a worldwide reputation, he is known for his ability to find photographs that might not be in inventory and to work with seasoned collectors and beginners alike in putting together a fine collection or just finding the right print for your home or office.

A personal word: "I'm a big believer in simple. I've kept this website simple and easy to manage without a lot of extraneous info. Feel free to contact the gallery if you have any questions. Our albums contain works that are currently in inventory but if you are looking for something you don't see here, after 20 years in the business as a dealer, and longer as a collector, I probably know whom to call to find what you're looking for and I will do my very best to secure it at the best price possible. And if you're looking to sell a fine art photograph, I am open to a possible purchase or consignment."
